Northside Festival - Thursday & Friday

Now that Northside is over and N. 6th street will soon again be filled with people convening outside of Public Assembly, smoking outside of Music Hall and clashing with the nightclubbing Sea crowd, we've at least got the memories of what was the best excuse in a while to come out and see your favorite Brooklyn bands play one after another, filling a weekend with an onslaught of plastic badge-driven live music. And, if memories are few but far between from partying like it was a music festival without the sobering outdoor dehydration, we've got you covered with a brilliant video recap Donald made while I lay sickly asleep all morning, noon and night yesterday (word to the wise: never, ever eat a container of beets from Oasis) and photos shot all around town.

There's more to come, specifically with DOM, Twin Sister, Les Savy Fav, Cults, Male Bonding and more, so make sure to check back for the weekend half of our good Northside times.

I'm so excited about Northside Festival that I could panic, which is pretty much what I'm doing over how many shows I want to see in its short lifespan. But, despite the massive scheduling, planning and stress-snacking that is already underway, it should be one hell of a this-festival-is-so-close-to-my-apartment-that-i-can-roll-out-bed-and-go-see-Cults-play-the-waterfront time.

If you haven't gotten a badge already, you might want to stop by the festival site to snag one — I spent all of early education math classes passing notes about Zac Hanson and who was dating who and even I know $50 for unlimited shows when some tickets are $15 is a bargain.

But, if you're not down with the one-in-one-outs or just prefer to spend your money on other things like gizmos and gadgets, no worries, because now you can have it ALL. (We're people pleasers here at Big Ugly.) Enter for your chance to win a pair of VIP All Access Passes and an iPad 3G on L Magazine's site

Check back all week for a slew of videos and articles before, during and after the fest. It's gonna be a doooozy.
